Model Stormwater Construction SWPPPs

November 19, 2007

Model Stormwater Construction SWPPPs

To supplement the popular “Developing Your Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan: A Guide for Construction Sites” (commonly known as the EPA SWPPP Guide), two “model or example” SWPPPs have been developed. The first example SWPPP is for a medium-sized residential subdivision and the second is for a small commercial site. Both examples utilize the SWPPP template that is part of the SWPPP Guide. These examples use hypothetical sites and conditions to demonstrate the development of a SWPPP that meets permit requirements and accurately describes the steps being taken to prevent stormwater pollution. An updated version of the SWPPP template is also available. To view these model SWPPPs or to access any of EPA’s SWPPP resources, please visit
